In our everyday lives, we have all been guilty of over buying or preparing too much food, only to have it end up in our bins. Eating out and shopping we’d witness similar wastage in prepared dishes and ingredients, goods for sale, and items stocked on shelves or display. Whilst much of this waste has been driven by historic customer demand and the ability for businesses to absorb considerable wastage within their margins, this approach is no longer sustainable, nor acceptable. We believe there is a real problem to be solved and make an impactful difference for us, for our children, for our planet. Through WIN, we can support the sustainability vision of the UAE – and beyond – and help each other turn commitments into measurable actions in implementing a sustainable food lifestyle.
Our Mission is to create a community of consumers and businesses joined through a unique platform solution, where food produced is ultimately consumed at zero waste in the UAE.
Our Vision: As the ‘go to’ food sustainability experts in the UAE, we will build a community where our knowledge and technology empower people and businesses to contribute to a cleaner planet for the next generation by promoting best in class, traceable, impact solutions for the Food Industry.
